After owning two Outbacks with virtually zero problems, the wife decided to purchase a sedan this time. They hold their value extremely well and are priced like everyone else's two wheel drive.

Looks great! We're looking for an Impreza outback right now, putting in for quotes online tonight and will test drive in the next week or so. If the wife likes it we'll buy. The only things that concern me about it are that the 205/50x17 tires will probably be hard to replace with something beefy and the the seats look sort of mediocre. We drive at least 10 miles/day on gravel and it takes it's toll on tires.

Low profile tires like that reduce the sidewall flex for ride comfort on bumpy roads. they also decrease traction in slippery conditions as the profile gets lower.

Subaru seems to have confused the Outback model with the WRX in their product planning. The Outback model has a raised suspension for additional ground clearance, why would they put low profile tires on it?

If the Impreza doesn't pan out we'll check out the Legacy. It looks really nice but we didn't want to spend the extra money.

There is an Outback model Impreza but try to find one. That is what I really wanted for the wife other than the wagon but she really likes the sports car look. The leather seats in this car are by far the best we have had to date in a Subaru.

As far as the tires are concerned, the only bad part about them is the additional cost for replacement.

This one I paid invoice for, the last one was 250 under and both times I was allowed more than "clean" book for our Outback. They hold their value! Rebates are decent now as well.

Good luck with your dealing!

Thanks. If Impreza Outbacks are hard to find we're not in a big hurry (we've decided to wait until our taxes are done anyway). In the mean time a test drive is in order.

Cutter, if you don't mind me asking what model Legacy did you get? 4 cyl, 6 cyl, turbo, manual or auto transmission? How is the performance?

As best I know, the only engine available is the 4 cyl. in that model. The Impreza we saw on the floor is the turbo model, just came in and was already sold. Very fancy, list price was around 36k.

Ours have all been automatic and the performance is great, makes you think it is a six most of the time. She was ticking off 29 mpg with the wagon so we shall see how this one does.

There was a young couple in the store when we tried ours that had gone to drive a Honda and a Toyota (sedans) and came back and purchased the Impreza. Said there was no comparison for the money. I agree.

My wife's is basically a standard edition other then the spoiler as it even has cloth seats, as she doesn't like leather! (or chains) The 07 is so much better then the 04 edition. We have picked up over five mpg just breaking it in, this car unlike the old one barely needs a passing gear with the extra fifteen horsepower.

We bought a 08 Outback last september , it's been a great vehicle. The wife drives it in the winter , for work , the P.A. winters can get really bad . It averaged almost 25 mpg all winter ,with the winter wheels/tires on it! .
